                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RODEKI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, THE HYPHEN-DASH fought STONECRUSHER II and gained 17 points 
and contributed to COLOR ME SUAVE's 3-2-0.  CORRUPT TURNKEY has lost to VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE, falling 4 points, while helping make DUNGEON CELL a 2-1-1 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, CHATTY CABALIST kept DELVERS' warrior, ROCKHOG, from 
claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  ROCKHOG has departed RODEKI, leaving DELVERS without their 9-13-0 
warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Dipsy Dixie -- Go go go! -- Rockhog
P.S.  I like watching you from the rear.

Chatty Cabalist -- Don't look at me!  I don't know a thing about that stuff. --
Dacimousel

Coldfishfinger -- It is to laugh, ha ha.  I have no face, therefore your stated
intention to rip it off is without substance. -- Stonecrusher Mark II

Lemon Tender -- Maybe so, but I think it should have ginger in it, too. -- Faroman

Almost Pretty -- Or at least close enough for government work. -- Eacham

Wow!  Real personals by someone else!  We're stunned. -- the Delvers
P.S.  And grateful.  Don't forget that part.

     If there were supposed to be more personals here, our apologies.  Hal took the
     weekend off, and we're still trying to catch up with the mail.  They should
     appear next time.
